1 Karslake, Basil 1940: The Last Act - South of the Somme
London Leo Cooper Ltd 1979 0850522404 / 9780850522402 First Edition Hardcover Fair Fair 
0850522404 283 pages. Index, references, appendices, bibliography. Black and white photographic plates. Map endpapers. "The 'miracle' of Dunkirk exercised such a grip upon the public imagination that the fate of the 200,000 British troops left behind after the evacuation has been almost totally ignored. In relating the hitherto untold story of what happened to that forgotten army Major Karslake suggests that there were many people who thought it better that the story should remain untold. The extraordinary situation whereby there was no British overall commander, each British formation coming under a separate French command, the fantastic but nonetheless seriously considered idea of the Breton Redoubt, and the loss of a vast and, at that time, irreplaceable quantity of stores are among the most pertinent issues which Major Karslake describes and discusses." - from dust jacket. Usual library markings. Above-average wear. Lean to spine. Still a worthy reading copy.
